Arrow has cast Austin Butler in a recurring role as a new love interest for Thea. His character, Chase, is described as a charismatic DJ whose talent and wiles will catch the attention of Oliver’s kid sister (who last was seen being whisked away by her big, bad daddy, Malcolm Merlyn). Butler’s previous TV credits include The Carrie Diaries, Switched at Birth, and Life Unexpected.
Season 3 of Arrow will premiere Wednesday, Oct 8 on The CW. Butler will make his first appearance in episode 7.
